Couture Cardstock and the Chip ART Tool by GCD & Scrapstreet Design Team Call!

This month is just zooming! For those of you that don't know Couture Cardstock is having a month long challenge contest over at their blog. Each day they list a new challenge and you have that day until midnight to complete the challenge and link back to their blog - lots of cardstock is being given away this month!

Couture offers an amazing variety of cardstock and for all of you cricut lovers out there - it cuts like butter in your machine! I personally love all of the textures, colors,and weights that are offered!

Anyway I finally was able to play along today! The challenge today was to use a vintage image on any project. CarrieAnne from Couture posted today's challenge and shared with us a free vintage image site - and I was more than happy to check it out! Wowsies - there are some beautiful images - so make sure to check it out! (link here)

After looking through the blog - I found the perfect image of baby and mother and decided to make a little card for my Sister- in- law that just had a baby. So with my super sweet vintage image I simply printed it out on a sheet of the amazing one sheet wonder by Couture Cardstock! If you love to use copic markers you MUST get this paper - I would never color without it - not even kidding! In fact I think this is my new "horde item" (yes, I have hording issues but that's a whole different story! LOL)

Anyway, here's my little card - lots of copic coloring going on here:

You might also notice the cute little "congrats" on the bottom. I was playing with my new ChipArt tool by GCD Studios - um wow this tool is amazing and a bit addictive!
